This was just around the corner from our hotel, easy to find using the trip advisor map. It was a Monday in February and 3 out of about 6 or so small tables inside occupied. The food was good and the house red was very nice. The waiter was nice if it was a little strange him standing right beside us as we ate.

We popped in here for lunch on our way back down from visiting the Castelo de Sao Jorge and we're so glad we did, because we got a slice of 'real' Portugal.

It's tucked away in a corner which means you could easily miss it and walk past, but I strongly suggest you keep your eyes peeled! The hostess and her colleagues are very friendly and welcoming, the food simple yet tasty and the prices very reasonable.

My boyfriend had the homemade burger which he raved about and I had the roasted vegetable salad with mozzarella which was fresh-tasting and just light enough for lunch. I had a fresh pineapple juice to drink which was so lovely, I just had to have another! None of this 'from concentrate' rubbish here. We sat outside in the sunshine and watched the world go by as tram after tram trundled past. It was just perfect.

In fact, it was so good that we made the effort to journey out of the city centre for breakfast the next day, where we had an equally warm welcome and some gorgeous fresh croissants with coffee. It's all beautifully charming, and we thoroughly recommend.

We stumbled upon this place one afternoon and enjoyed a late lunch here. We ate inside as all the outdoor tables were full, and it was so cute and cozy! We had the lunch special for 10.50 including drink, soup, main and dessert... plenty of food, delicious and beautifully presented to boot. When I wasn't crazy about my dessert, they brought me a panna cotta instead and it was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend Canto da Vila!

This small quaint restaurant was quite a delight. We found the atmosphere much less rushed than a popular restaurant down the street. The prawns in a garlic and light red sauce were yummy and the chicken saltimbocca was delightful. Would return again!

We went for dinner and sat inside, which had great atmosphere. The kitchen is right there and we enjoyed watching our meal prepared. The house red wine was very good and we started with the sautéed shrimp. For dinner, I had the baked cod and it was fabulous as was dessert. The service was friendly and excellent. Highly recommended if you are looking for a great evening dining.
